Appearance: Most people usually see Peter doing one of two things around school: sleeping in class or demolishing a large bag of chips anywhere else on the campus. Except for the people who shared a majority of (advanced) classes with him, most people saw the latter activity often and would swear that Peter’s stomach was a portal to a pocket dimension. Despite his eating habits, Peter manages to fit only 121 pounds onto his 5’9” frame, something of great annoyance to him.
Peter has a slim face, so he keeps his black hair short and styled in small spikes to not make his hair appear too big. Peter’s facial features are typical of an asian teenager: small flat nose, narrowed eyes, and high cheekbones. Peter’s coffee-coloured eyes seem to appear in only two states: wistful, as if he’s caught in a daydream; or piercing, as if he’s looking right through people. The eyes are always framed by a pair of black rectangular glasses.
Peter’s clothes can be immediately noted as atypical. He wears his button-up shirts half-tucked into his black jeans, and rolls the sleeves just up to the elbow. His shirts are usually solid black or white, although he does have a wardrobe of several other colors (mostly blue). Occasionally, he will complement the shirt with a tie, worn loose around his neck. He is also known for wearing a variety of cross-shaped accessories, chief of which is a small wooden cross that he always wears around his neck. On the day of the trip, he wore a white button-up shirt with a cross printed over the right shoulder blade, a black tie, black jeans, and a pair of plain white basketball shoes.

Biography: Peter was born and raised in the temperate city of Vancouver, Canada. Peter’s parents are devout Catholics and had him baptized when he was several months old. His parents were involved in many church groups, which by proxy exposed him and his older brother to church activities as he was growing up.

As a child, Peter’s parents often volunteered him and his brother to join in various groups and activities, but never consulted him about this. This led to his growing resentment of his lack of freedom within the family. In any case, Peter has been involved in his community as a boy scout and at his church as an altar boy, among other things. Peter was never very fond of the underlying motive for these groups, but basked in the benefits of being there. As an altar boy, he had a core group of friends at his church that were, at least in part, in the same situation as him. As a boy scout, he enjoyed the frequent trips out to the mountains for long hikes over beautiful scenery and late nights laughing with friends around a campfire.

From a young age, Peter was thoroughly educated on the religious doctrines of the Catholic church. He learned a great deal about the rites and beliefs of the church, as well as their origin and history. He disagrees with a number of their doctrines, especially ritualized prayer and teachings on homosexuality.

The summer before he moved to Minnesota, Peter went on a camping trip with his friends, where they enjoyed alcoholic beverages and experimented a bit sexually. It was then that Peter determined that he was bisexual. He also picked up a taste for alcohol, particularly hard liquor of various types. He finds the alcohol to be an excellent aid to socialization, as his mood lightens up considerably when under its influence.

Due to his parents’ change in employment, he moved to Minnesota in his junior year of high school. While not being the shining example of sociable, he managed to make a handful of close friends. His closest friend is Tiffany Baker, who he also shares a parish with. The two of them worked hard in the church to revive their small dying youth group. Recently, he also came into the position of the conductor for the church’s youth choir. As such, he spends much of his off-school time planning and coordinating various church activities. At school, Peter is primarily involved in the school band and choir, but has no argument in lending a hand or head to other groups that need help for planning or running events.

Peter’s pastimes depend on how much available time he has. When he has a lot of time, he’ll take short trips out to the nearest hiking trails or camping spots. He enjoys the serenity of nature, as it gives him time and peace of mind to think about his life and others. On particularly long weekends or holidays, he’ll arrange a trip back to Vancouver, where he can visit his friends and enjoy the scenery and trails in that area. When he lacks the time for a trip to the wilderness, he prefers to either go drinking at a party or sit around and browse internet forums. He finds some forums to be interesting, as there are a myriad of people with vastly different origins and philosophies that will congregate in discussion, and he can learn about differing paradigms and beliefs.

When around people, Peter prefers to listen, rather than contribute, to conversation. He sometimes interjects in sarcastic commentary, but rarely indulges in small talk. If discussion shifts to topics more in his interest, such as religion or philosophy, he is more than willing to inform others of their misconceptions on the topic. Amongst friends, he is warm and caring, and is known to lend a hand or ear when needed.

Advantages: Peter’s experience in hiking has trained him with the stamina of moving for long distances over rough terrain. He is also good at being aware of the ground that he’s moving on at all times. He’s learned many outdoorsman skills such as first aid and shelter building, and general resourcefulness. He is highly logical and analytical, which he uses to interpret people’s actions.
Disadvantages: Peter is a terrible shot (or throw). The joke amongst his friends is that the safest place to be is to get aimed at. He rarely does in-depth analyses on the spot, preferring to file observations away for later reference. He tends to be trusting of people, letting his suspicions be overshadowed by optimism.

Designated Number: Male Student no. 4


Designated Weapon: Falchion
Conclusion: Ooh a bisexual Catholic! I sense nothing but pure entertainment value out of boy 004! His draw is decent I suppose, though he will really need a gun to be effective. I have a good feeling that "Thou shalt not kill" will indeed be broken! Lets just hope he learns to play first, before someone plays him.
